Fans have witnessed them rescuing the Bulls in the final seconds of the game. They are just like on paper, having identical height, weight, wingspan but very different personalities. However, off-court evidence suggests otherwise showing an even more close relationship than originally thought.

Whereas MJ is not just a great rescuer for the team, but also in terms of the individual who is supposed to fall into trouble as well. This great duo works on and off the court. Their success as a duo is to their hard work and dedication to the game of basketball.

It was found on Twitter that Jordan took the responsibility of taking Pippen away from the media before getting into trouble.

MJ clearly involved getting him away from the one too many questions of the reporters once. He interfered with a straight ‘NO’ when the reporters asked if they had a second to talk! Considering Pippen to be a nicer, kindhearted guy, the rest of the people take advantage of him. Meanwhile, Jordan masks himself to be a rude guy, yelling at the people straight away and rescuing him from creating a ruckus.

Pippen makes dim-witted stops when the reporters ask for their time to talk, but MJ takes it personally and tries to avoid trouble by coming over and dragging him away.
